Mod Spotlight: ARMA 2 DayZ

Mod Spotlight: Arma 2 DayZ

Unfortunately I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus lately dealing with some health issues. Not a lot was happening in the PC gaming sphere worth talking about so I took my time.

Something quite interesting was brought to my attention by Megamansx recently though. DayZ is a persistent-world zombie and the elements survival mod for Arma II. It’s probably not what you’re imagining. It’s better. Think Left 4 Dead in a persistent world with a massive landscape. You’re plopped down onto the map and left to your own devices. You must survive by finding food, ammo and avoiding zombies, other players and your inevitable perma-death. You will die. It’s just a matter of when.

Apparently you can repair vehicles and drive them (like a bus, tractor or even a helicopter) but the parts are difficult to find. Check it out. Better yet, this video explains DayZ quite well.

If you own Arma 2 then I’d suggest giving DayZ a look. ARMA II: Operation Arrowhead is required to play DayZ.

Another great mod is on the horizon. The Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod has been ‘resurrected’ and is back in business. I can’t believe that JC2 (a really fun sandbox) was not designed with MP in the first place. JC2 could have been an amazing success had MP been included.
